It’s so hard to say Goodbye

goodbye-bw

I started the SereneStyle blog in July 2012, it has continued through some really challenging times of my life, but now I feel it is time to say Goodbye to SereneStyle. This has been partially initiated through the upcoming changes to Flickr; with the thought of either deleting several thousand photos to continue using the free option or to consider swapping to a new photo sharing provider.  After thinking about how things have changed over the last 6 years I have decided that the passion for blogging is no longer there for me, and I do not wish to make this into a chore when it has been such a pleasure to create.

As this will be my final post to SereneStyle I wanted to finish with a gorgeous gown from one of my all time favourite Secondlife designers Silvan Moon Designs. A Murder of Crows, shown here in purple, is available at the current round of We Love Roleplay . It comes in a selection of darkly dramatic color combinations and includes Maitreya and SLink fit gown and train as well as the crowning glory a sumptuous chapeau.

goodbye

The gloves are a Dead Dollz item from a past gacha event and are rigged for Maitreya but not bento ( therefore there is a little poke through but I decided to roll with it).  The glorious waves is courtesy of Sintiklia – Gigi is at the just opened round of C88. The pose prop a very old , and most likely unavailable anywhere, item from flowey.

As this is a farewell for this blog I will mention that I have started exploring several of the newer Social media platforms designed for Secondlife residents and will continue to take photos and share my enjoyment of SL clothing and locations, there won’t be any ” sponsors” connected to this however , it will be purely as and when I choose. So if you too are checking out non- flickr related platforms check out :  https://pixelvr.me/  and     https://socialvr.life/.

Finally a big thank you to all followers, readers and supporters of SereneStyle, I have loved sharing my SL with you and appreciate the role you have all played in this blogging experience.

Apart from the gowns being at the same event there are a couple of other similarities between the pictures.. see if you can work them out! There are 5 in total;  1. The event where the gowns are featured. 2….. 3…. Let me know in the comments if you work them out?

I want to get this post out quickly as there is a time sensitive sale.. and the problem is there are no details as to when the time is up! Fishy Strawberry is closing down forever, and while I am super sad to see this fantastic store leaving SL, I was thrilled to pick up some additional pieces at the bargain of 25L. Everything in the store is 25L, the first room is mostly where you will find the newer items but do check out all areas, there are some great items that came out before body specific mesh pieces were available and there are demos.

 

Eyes like Ice on Fire

I wanted to share a couple close ups, first up this great free gift from No_Match which you will find at  Hair Fair 2018, and last but not least these stunning boots from Renegade, although not a new release I wanted to share another look at these versatile boots. Not only do you get a hud to change the colors, but there is also a range of textures, this is gothic design and I used the tint slider to make a bright yellow into a dull gold- I love customisation so much fun.
